Bitterman, Jeanne E.
This guidebook, which is intended for educational professionals who are seeking to establish liaisons with business partners and provide workplace education to the health and manufacturing industries, contains strategies and issues that workplace education program administrators and instructors should consider when designing and delivering onsite educational training. Developed on the basis of extensive literature and documentation reviews, interviews with key educational and industry personnel, and observations, the guide's seven chapters covers the following topics: Business and Professional Development Institute Project; starting a partnership; assessing need; principles of adult education applied to work force education; organizing instruction and customizing the curriculum; learner assessment and program evaluation; and strategies for providing support for workplace literacy. Twenty-five forms, graphics, and tables are included. The bibliography lists 27 references. Appendixes constituting approximately 60% of this document contain the following: sample survey reports; training outlines/schedules; workshop session outlines; instructional materials on decision making, brainstorming, memo writing, calculation; and reporting problems; assessment materials; and assessment and outcome forms. Also included is the text of a presentation, "Workshops in the Workplace" (Claude D. Grant, Natalie Hannon, Doris D. Dingle), that was made to a 1997 symposium on workplace education in the health care environment. (MN)
